The cost to educate a child at Zion is $8,500. Tuition covers part of this cost, but Zion Lutheran Church funds the difference. It is a commitment of love for Christian education and an opportunity to both fulfill our mission and to share Jesus Christ with our students and the community we serve. The Board of Christian Education and the Church Council work very hard to bless families with affordable tuition but also keeping in mind that it places a high
value on having excellent teachers and continuing value in academics and beyond. We are thankful for every child, and for our congregational support.
New student enrollment for the following year begins on February 1st.
Tuition can be paid in full prior to the beginning of school, or a payment plan can be selected that is payable over 10 months (August – May) or 12 months (June – May), and billing is completed externally through the company called FACTS. There is a minimal annual charge ($50, on average) per family for this service; all families must enroll.
Other fees are billed monthly through FACTS and will show up as Incidental Expenses. Some examples of Incidental Expenses are: hot lunch and milk charges, after-school care, band fees, athletics fees, use of the Zion bus/van route, and Parent Teacher League dues.
